The shins - simple song ( lyrics & clip )


Well, this is just a simple song,

To say what you done.

I told you 'bout all those fears,

And away they did run.

You sure must be strong,

And you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun.

When I was just nine years old,

I swear that I dreamt,

Your face on a football field,

And a kiss that I kept,

Under my vest.

Apart from everything,

But the heart in my chest.

 

Chorus:

I know that things can really get rough,

When you go it alone.

Don't go thinking you gotta be tough,

And play like a stone.

Could be there's nothing else in our lives so critical,

As this little home.

My life in an upturned boat,

Marooned on a cliff.

You brought me a great big flood,

And you gave me a lift.

Girl, what a gift.

Will you tell me with your tongue,

And your breath was in my lungs,

And we float up through the rift.

 

Chorus:

I know that things can really get rough,

When you go it alone.

Don't go thinking you gotta be tough,

And play like a stone.

Could be there's nothing else in our lives so critical,

As this little home.

Well, this would be a simple song,

To say what you done.

I told you 'bout all those fears,

And away they did run.

You sure must be strong,

When you feel like an ocean being warmed by the sun.

Remember walking a mile to your house,

Aglow in the dark?

I made a fumbling play for your heart,

And the act struck a spark.

You wore a charm on the chain that I stole,

Especial for you.

Love's such a delicate thing that we do,

With nothing to prove,

Which I never knew.
